We stayed here for 3 nights in 3 different rooms. The rooms are rather old but good enough for just staying overnight as we tend to head out to explore Hanoi most of the day. It can get a little noisy as it's just within the hustle bustle of the Old Quarter. But the location is perfect for a short stroll to all the attractions especially areas around Hoan Kiem lake.
Huong, who runs the homestay, is a wonderful host who has kindly and efficiently arranged both our tours to Sapa & Halong bay. We have also joined in their family dinners & breakfasts twice! On the last night of our stay, my husband Joshua fell ill. Huong has kind enough to hop on her motorbike at night to get some pills from the nearby clinic to ease his indigestion.
It's been a privilege to be able to stay with a family and know that you are looked after in a foreign land. She even gave us gifts to take back to Malaysia!
